'''Edward Bellamy''' (March 26, 1850 – May 22, 1898) was an American author and socialist, most famous for his utopian novel, ''Looking Backward'', a tale set in the distant future of the year 2000. Bellamy's vision of a harmonious future world inspired the formation of at least 165 "Nationalist Clubs" dedicated to the propagation of Bellamy's political ideas and working to make them a practical reality.Franklln Rosemont, "Bellamy's Radicalism Reclaimed", in Daphne Patai (ed.), ''Looking Backward, 1988-1888.'' Amherst MA: University of Massachusetts Press, 1988; pg. 201.
